When Bess was born I knew right away that I wanted some kind a carrier. We ended up with two. A Baby-Bag sling and a Snugli baby carrier (not the soft kind). I could never really get into either of these carriers.
The Baby-bag shoulder strap was very uncomfortable and my shoulders would just kill. I do however like this one for the hip carring of Bess. So it still does get used.
The Snugli we have is okay, but a not comfortable for me as it squished my boobs and makes me uncomfortable. My husband however likes it and uses it often.
When I started to realized that JJ was not going to be as independent as his sister I started to look for something that I could wear around the house with him in it that would be comfortable for both of us. I settled on a Moby Wrap.
JJ likes it sometimes. However when he does go in it he falls asleep so quickly and it is usually a nice deep sleep and he will actually have a long nap.
It is comfortable too. I think I love that there are no pressure points on my shoulders with it. That was my biggest complaint with the other two infant carriers. This one just feels like I am wearing a t-shirt that is pulling a bit.
I also love that there are different holds to it. Once JJ's head is a bit more stable I will try him facing outwards. I am sure he will love it.
The other big selling point for me: it is truly hands free and allows me to interact with Bess when JJ has decided to be fussy and wants to be held. Another great thing: when Bess is being fussy and wants to be held (or not be in the stroller, as was the case yesterday) she can go into it too!
